Trainer’s Tips

  • Stand with your feet at least shoulder width apart so that you can follow through after the slam.
  • Be aware of the ball if it bounces and do not allow it to bounce up and hit you in the face.
  • Use your abs to slam the ball. Try to mimic a crunching movement with your core as you slam the ball to the floor.
